Theatre Professional Trainee Program

Thank you for your interest in The Barrow Group’s Trainee Program. Auditions are held each year June through August.

The Barrow Group Trainee Program is a 12 month Internship in which participants receive acting training as well as focused instruction and experience in arts administration and theater production. The training includes acting training from Barrow Group teachers as well as instruction from TBG staff members regarding aspects of arts administration and theater production. In addition to class work, Trainees gain valuable experience in running an award winning off-Broadway theatre company, meet other industry professionals, and refine their artistic goals.

The program begins each September and concludes the following September with an industry invited showcase. Class occurs each week on Thursdays from 2:30pm-6:30pm.

The program is for New York actors looking for continued training in scene study, monologues, on-camera Film & TV, Shakespeare, and script analysis. Performance opportunities include a monologue showing, optional self-produced reading series, and an invited industry showcase.
